Vote For The Cincinnati TV Idol Rip-Off
Eric said it would be like this??? Meteorologists from three local TV stations – and some of their co-workers – want your vote for their video in KISS107's clever local "American Idol" contest, the "KISS107 FM's Cincinnati Television Newsperson Idol Rip-off." They karaoke is cheesy and corny, but it's fun to watch the TV folks cut loose and show some personality.
--Channel 5's Randi Rico and Eric Green singing The Weather Girls’ "It's Raining Men."
--Channel 12's Michelle Boutilette and Cammy (Don't Call Me Shy) Dierking singing Miley Cyrus' "See You Again."
--Channel 19's Christie Dutton, Tricia Macke, Jack Atherton, Zach Wells and more of the Fox 19 news team singing Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline."
Tune in the KISS107 (WFKS-FM, 107.1) Tim and George/Jeff morning show to hear the participants beg for your vote. The winner will be announced Wednesday morning, the day Fox crowns the seventh "American Idol." The team with the most online votes "will get a fund-raiser or public service campaign executed by Kiss Mornings for the charity of their choice," says the station web site. As of this morning, Channel 19 was leading with 42%, followed by Channel 5 at 39% and Channel 12 with 19%.
Channel 9 was invited to participate, but didn’t want to play along. (Why not? Somebody call the I-Team!)
